3 things to consider when looking for a barrister

What is a Barrister?

Barristers can help you with many legal issues, for example, by providing advice on your legal rights, drafting legal documents for you and representing you in a court or tribunal.  Barristers must have a valid practising certificate issued by the Bar Standards Board. If a barrister has a practising certificate, you can be confident that they are fully qualified and they must comply with the BSB Handbook, which sets out the ethical duties of practising barristers. They will also keep their knowledge up to date.

Do I Need a Barrister?

Most people tend to seek legal advice at first from a solicitor. They will work directly with you to help you resolve your legal problems. They will meet you, work out what the case is, sort out the paperwork, and communicate with others involved in your case. If the case needs to go to court, or if more specialist advice is needed, a solicitor will often instruct a barrister to offer expert advice about a specific area of the law, or to go to court and represent you.

But you can also go straight to certain barristers for help provided that they are specially registered by us to work directly for members of the public. These barristers are known as “Public Access” or “Direct Access” barristers.

Where can I find a Barrister?

If you start by employing a solicitor and they decide that you will need a barrister, they will usually choose your barrister for you. Solicitors will usually have barristers they work with regularly and will know who to ask.

If you want to hire a barrister directly yourself you should make sure the are registered by the BSB.

Only barristers authorised by the BSB s to be Public Access barristers are allowed to offer their services directly to the public. This is because it requires extra training. You can search for Public Access barristers on the Bar Council’s Direct Access Portal.

We Look At The Law Differently

“Equal justice under law is not merely a caption on the facade of the Supreme Court. It is perhaps the most inspiring ideal of our society. … It is fundamental that justice should be the same, in substance and availability, without regard to economic status.”
Lewis Powell Supreme Court Justice
United States
The Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (LASPO) introduced funding cuts to legal aid, meaning fewer people can access free legal advice. Since 2012, legal aid has no longer been available for early advice, including housing and family law. Without legal aid for early advice, legal problems can escalate unnecessarily and cause issues such as poor health, debt and homelessness. As a result of escalating legal problems, a lack of early legal advice can increase taxpayer costs and the burden on the courts.
